A DEVOTED STUDENT OP WETHERSFIELD's HISTORY 

THIS WORK IS 
GRATEFULLY DEDICATED 



PREFACE 



Scattered all over New England are traces of old neglected 
cem-eteries, often remote from the traveled roads, the monu- 
ments therein broken and decayed, and perhaps buried by 
overgrowths and debris. Already many such are completely 
obliterated, the only evidence of their existence being proved 
by the plowshare in the hands of a new people, but lately in 
possession of the soil; a people having littk, if any, sentimental 
interest in the former occupants. 

With the general revival of interest in our ancestors during 
the past few years, largely induced by the numerous patriotic 
hereditary societies that have recently sprung into existence, 
fresh impulses have throbbed in our hearts to honor the 
memory of the long-departed dead. Many ancient burial- 
grounds, for years left to the ravages of nature and the destruc- 
tive hand of the stranger, have been as nearly as possible re- 
stored to their pristine condition, and this commendable work 
is still extending. In this State, laws have recently been en- 
acted in view of encouraging the restoration of these " God's 
Acres," and many of our older country towns are availing 
themselves of the improved opportunities by organizing, with 
corporate power, for the purpose of renovating the old ceme- 
teries within their borders. 

Probably in but few of the burying-grounds in New Eng- 
land are the older stones in a better state of preservation than 
in the old cemetery at Wethersfield. This is unquestionably 
due to the sandy nature of the soil, as well as to the fact that few 
trees have existed to collect those enemies of sandstone and 
marble, dampness and the consequent mould. 

The inscriptions in the three cemeteries herein referred to 
as Newington, " Church Street," and " Beckley Quarter "

WETHERSFIELD INSCRIPTIONS 



Wethersfield. 



Located nearly in the center of the present village of Weth- 
ersfield, and directly in the rear of the old First Church edifice, 
there rises above the low surrounding country, to an elevation 
of perhaps twenty feet, a nearly circular sand hill in the midst 
of a large tract of heavy loam. Proofs are not wanting that 
this hill was originally a burial-mound of the aborigines of the 
country. Tradition also tells us that before the advent of the 
white man the river rose to an unprecedented height, forcing 
the local inhabitants to encamp upon its summit for a period 
of several days, who suffered much inconvenience meantime 
for lack of food ; and from henceforth it was known in local 
nomenclature as " Hungry Hill " — a name fraught with mean- 
ing to this day. And nowhere in New England can a more 
beautiful natural location be found for the interment of loved 
friends, commanding as it does a wonderful prospect of the 
*' Great River " winding for miles through its fertile meadows, 
with the uplands of Glastonbury in the background. Here, 
near the little log church, the fathers of the town were laid to 
rest, and to-day this cemetery, with its subsequent enlarge- 
ments, is the only one in the present township. It originally 
embraced the eastern and a part of the western declivity. 

December 27, 1680, " it was voted and agreed that Emanuel 
Buck shall dig all graves and he is to have foure shillings a pece 
for growne persons and thre shillings a pece for all others." 

March 24, 1681, a committee appointed for the purpose, 

reported " that the Townes men with Lieut. Steell layd out the 

highway from the Street to the burying place on the south side 

of Zachery Seamers Lott one Rod and quarter wide, haveing 

first Laid out half an acre to Zachery Seamer, and sett mear 

stones and Measured Samuell Smiths lott and finding for him

one Rood and upwards of land." Two years later, in 1683, 
some controversy having arisen over the boundaries of the 
yard, a committee was appointed to establish the bounds. De- 
cember 24, 1684, it was agreed that the plot should be seven 
rods wide and twenty-three and three-quarters rods long, con- 
taining a little over an acre. 

The first enlargement was made March 8, 1736, when 
Nathaniel Burnham, in return for land given him by the town, 
granted to the Society a piece of land on the west and a 
narrow strip on the south, thus nearly doubling the area of the 
original plot. 

The second addition was on January 29, 1760, when the 
ground was extended on the west by nearly a quarter of an 
acre, James Mitchell being the grantor. This brought the 
burial line nearly up to the foundations of the present church 
edifice, the cornerstone of which was laid May 6, 1761. 

February 25. 1853, the First School Society, into whose 
hands the care of the property had passed, purchased what is 
known as the " Clapp extension " on the east, containing a 
trifle over one and three-quarters acres. 

The last as well as the largest extension in the history of 
the cemetery occurred on July 22, 1881, when two acres on the 
south were granted to the School Society by the heirs of the 
Rev. John Marsh. Only a part of this has as yet been im- 
proved and laid out in lots, however. The entire area of the 
cemetery to-day is nearly five and three-quarters acres, con- 
taining some 1,500 monuments. The earliest stone extant is 
that of Leonard Chester, who died in 1648, although there were 
several burials previous to his. But two other stones erected 
prior to 1700 remain to-day, those of Captain John Chester, 
who died February 23, 1697, and Mrs. Sarah Chester, who 
died December 12, 1698.

Newington. 

In May, 1713, the Second, or West, parish of Wethersfield 
was incorporated, although the church was not organized until 
October 17, 1722. The inhabitants of this society continued 
to use the common burying-ground until, on March 7, 1726, 
upon their petition, the town of Wethersfield granted them 
" one Acre of Land for a Burying place near their Meeting 
house or Elsewhere in the half mile Common and to be Laid 
out by Deacon Jabez Whittlesey, Deacon John Deming and 
Richard Bordman, who shall bound out the same by sufficient 
Monuments and Record it to sd society/* On December 4, 
1752, this committee reported that " We have laid out an Acre 
of Land for said purpose a little north of the meeting house in 
sd Newington, including the old Burying place, and bounded it 
out by Sufficient monuments, it being Sixteen Rods in Length 
East and West, and ten rods in Width North and South." 
This was apparently sufficient in size for the needs of the parish 
until December 12, 1842, when Henry Kilbourn sold to the 
society a small strip on the west, ' measuring 155 links from 
north to south and 37 links in width from east to west, con- 
taining nine rods and one hundred and one square feet. Said 
piece of land is divided into five lots by the Grantees for a 
burying-ground." 

November 8, 1843, Henry Kilbourn sold to the School So- 
ciety, " for the use and benefit of a common Burying Ground," 
land containing one rood, twenty-two and seven-eighths rods, 
on the south of the yard. The last addition, which was also 
the largest, was made December i, 1865, when the School 
Society purchased of Henry Kilbourn and Samuel N. Rockwell 
a piece of land on the west, containing one and a half acres, 
making the present plot nearly three acres in extent. The 
oldest inscription is on the stone of Lydia, wife of Pelatiiah 
Buck, who died July 29, 1726, | and was " the first that was laid 
in this yard." The present town of Newington was incor- 
porated July 10, 1 87 1.

CHURCH STREET'' INSCRIPTIONS 307 



"Church Street/' Newington. 



The Episcopal parish of Wethersfield and Worthington was 
chartered September 14, 1797, the application being signed by 
David Steele and seven others. The edifice was erected at 
the south end of Church street, on the east side, was 50x40 
feet in dimensions, and was called " Christ's Church." A 
cemetery was laid out across the street from the church, and 
for nearly thirty years the inhabitants of that faith within a 
radius of ten miles met here for worship and burial. This 
was in the southwest part of Newington. The building was 
sold for one hundred and fifteen dollars by the committee to 
Jabez Dickinson, November 17, 1826, and a few years later 
the society located in New Britain, where it is now known as 
" St. Mark's." The earliest stone bears the date August 27, 
1803, and is that of Sophia, daughter of David and Lucy 
Gilbert. The yard is practically abandoned to-day as a place 
of burial, the last interment having been in August, 1886, 
though one or two families in the neighborhood own lots there, 
in which they bury their dead.

Glastonbury. 



The present town of Glastonbury, lying on the east side of 
the Connecticut River, did not . become separated from the 
mother town until October, 1693, at which time the church was 
organized, although its incorporation dates from May, 1690. 
On May 4, 1692, two of the inhabitants, Samuel Smith and 
John Hubbard, granted to the town a plot of ten acres for the 
erection of a meeting-house and for a burying-ground. The 
only enlargement of this cemetery was in 1867, when two acres 
were added on the east. The earliest stone is that of Eimice 
(Chester) Stevens, wife of the Rev. Timothy Stevens, dated 
June 4, 1698. The following inscriptions were intended to in- 
clude only those who were born previous to the separation in 
1693, although for convenience they comprise all bom before 
1700.
